Lotus Carroll1,778,393This is the Event for our March Self Portrait Challenge: "Scanography." What this means is your image must be captured using a scanner of some sort. We can make beautiful art using all kinds of different tools - this should challenge you to use something a little different than what you usually turn to when making images, which is fun and informative to your creative process. :-) If you don't have a scanner of your own, ask a friend or use one at your workplace (with permission, no getting in trouble at your job) or public library. *Be careful* - _don't hurt yourself or damage the scanner!_ Get creative and have fun - these images can be very striking and have a great quality to them that lends itself to creative posing, styling, and processing. Here is where you enter your ONE "Scanography" Self Portrait. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST March 31st, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. (The dates on the Event are truncated, but you can submit a photo anytime, all month long.) Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified. *Tips & Inspiration* I've curated a gallery of really interesting scanography self-portraits that you can check out for inspiration. Check it out here: https://goo.gl/81S5TH If you'd like, you can see an album of my own scanography here: https://goo.gl/sXCiW8 Moderators of the Art of Self Portraiture Community are not eligible to win, but we will also be putting our photos into the Event in the hopes that you'll be inspired. If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community http://goo.gl/W69Ohj and ask away! We have a category for discussion and questions and are happy to help with anything.  *Prizes* ~1 Year @118357019708110162087 Business Account http://www.smugmug.com/features (or comped value on current account) ~$150 Gift Certificate (restrictions apply*) for @108289626026839048870 http://www.borrowlenses.com  ~@100266938567862344330 Digital Holster 20 https://goo.gl/OTECbM ~ @101789561086090624750 Gift Code in the amount of $42.95 http://www.capturingcouture.com  *Please circle these sponsors* - we love their products and services and it's great that they support our learning and growing together. Having them circled is a requirement to be a winner. :) There will be 4 winners. 1st place winner selects choice of 4 prizes, and also has their image take the place of the current Avatar for The Art of Self Portraiture Community. 2nd place selects choice of 3 remaining prizes. 3rd place selects choice of 2 remaining prizes. 4th place receives the remaining prize. Winners must respond within 24 hours of being contacted or new winners will be chosen.

Jeff Smith61,778Welcome to The Selfie Sunday Project for April 5, 2015 We are back! First thing you may notice is "Selfy" has become "Selfie", just a change to keep up with the more recognized spelling of selfie. A general theme for this week is *New Beginnings* , it's Spring and Selfie Sunday has returned so it seems to fit. If you can't stick to the theme no worries either, since we are freshly back and running any selfie you take is fine.  Please read this post for the guidelines and FAQ for Selfie Sunday. http://goo.gl/SKnkZ8 Your photo can be taken from Mar. 30/15 before the event up until 8:00 AM EDT Monday Apr. 6/15.

Lotus Carroll1,778,393This is the Event for our November Self Portrait Challenge: *Cinematic*. What this means is let your images be inspired by the look and feel of moving films, cinema, movies! Basically, they'll look like stills taken from a movie - drama, mystery, and action are all great genres to focus on. Location, lighting and angles will play key roles in your imagery, as well as your post processing technique for color, cropping, and more. Here is where you enter your ONE Cinematic Self Portrait. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST November 30th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. (The dates on the Event are truncated, but you can submit a photo anytime, all month long.) Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified. *Tips & Inspiration* Like most things, there are many ways to achieve this kind of look (just as there are many styles of cinema!), so find a style that suits you and work with it. This @111480916026711337375 article has some interesting information that you might enjoy: http://goo.gl/KhWR79   A good thing to remember when creating your image is that _movies tell stories_. As such, the story being told by your photo will have a huge impact on how "good" the finished product is - does your one image effectively pack the punch to tell a story? I think that the greatest cinematic images have great scene, lighting, angles, post processing (color, cropping, etc) and ALSO have been set-up such that they tell a story with impact. Moderators of the Art of Self Portraiture Community are not eligible to win, but we will also be putting our photos into the Event in the hopes that you'll be inspired. The header for this Event was created by @112528921891703025888.  If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community http://goo.gl/W69Ohj and ask away!

Rumor has it the smoothest dude alive @101651096660571767183 will also be joining us from NYC and @105873814765821560444 will be up from Los Angeles.   What a great night for photography this will be.  Come on out for a great G+ Photography evening!A San Francisco Dinner/Photowalk with Gordon Laing2012-10-11 17:30:00136

Scott Jarvie447,160UPDATE: it's online now: http://youtu.be/-DItFCAg4jM  *We like to call this a "PLUS ONE PARTY"* Because people submit links to their albums and we look through the pictures and _*we plus one the pictures we like*_ in the album. It's my way of giving quick feedback to people about which pictures really catch my attention out of their images. It's quick and yet helpful. Last time we looked at over 120 albums *LIVE PUBLIC HANGOUT* Yep it'll be a live public hangout again. Shorter and more awesome than last time. So if you LINK us an album make sure you know they will be on video and then on youtube. We're both really nice people and with people pictures we worry about commentary for fear they're related to you or something. But we may make commentary and you gotta be alright with that as well.  The video won't be edited when it goes onto youtube. I'm basically saying: _*The easily offended need not apply*_ *THEME = PEOPLE PICTURES* @109486822103622036238 and myself have a separate project going on where we're spending dozens of hours researching to find great photographers and create the most awesome list of "people shooters" https://plus.google.com/u/0/100962871525684315897/posts/UMBDiPKJqKa So therefore we've made the theme this time to People pictures as well because that's what mood we're in. If you already have an album like that share it. Or maybe put together another one in the next 24hrs that you'd like us to go through.  Professional work, weddings, families, kids, selfies, street candids, models etc *JOIN IN* This time we'll be linking the albums and having people join us as we go through the pictures... so you may be getting a lot more plus ones (eyeballs) than normal. *FAQ* We won't be looking at non-people pictures even if they're in the album. We'd rather not look at crazy large albums so try to keep them under 50 (but we can be a bit lenient) Please submit open/public albums specially since other people than myself will be wanting to view. Make sure you're following myself (@100962871525684315897 ) and @109486822103622036238  who'll be the moderators of the video. We're looking for someone awesome to help out on the show and provide interesting insights about the people who's work we're looking through so we can focus on the task at hand. *SHARE* Let your friends who photograph people know that it's a fun and easy opportunity. *VIEW* Hope to see you there during the live viewing saturday night at 9pm Mountain time We'll be using this Event as the chat log for the event. *ALBUMS* 1. +susan marinello - https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/109486822103622036238/albums/5787749627481544897 2. +scott jarvie - https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/100962871525684315897/albums/5628519010157340641 3. +Jason Jakober - https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/111397628815301589258/albums/5790838803220260353 4. +Paul R.

Jeff Smith61,778Welcome to The Selfy Sunday Project for Sept. 16/12 *Theme*: *Tales from the Dark Side* Otherwise know as a warm up for Halloween. Show us your dark side. It it could be spooky or scary, sinister or moody, perhaps your alter ego, but I know you have been there, now its time to bring it out. _Well lets not be too sinister - we are here to have some fun !_ As always the lovely +LaDonna Pride will be helping along the way as our co-host.

Michael Bonocore435,633Allright, Somehow @102476152658204495450 and @107430862196617669986 decided that since I like to drink (and click) so much, I should head the San Francisco chapter of   #DrinkAndClick . Well, CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!!! The second installment of   #DrinkAndClickSF  will be held next Thursday, June 28. Since we have some special Googlers in from out of town (@106015180204607019928   and @108147330019211554976 ) we will meeting at 5:30 PM at Red's Java House on the Embarcadero. What better way to show off our amazing city and spend a beautiful Thursday afternoon than under them SF iconic landmark, the Bay Bridge? From there, we will drink and click down the waterfront, eventually making our way towards AT&T Park. The Giants are hosting the Cincinnati Reds that evening, so there should be a lively atmosphere, with plenty of street photography to mix in with the usual Bay Bridge and Waterfront photos.  There will be free schwag, drink specials, photography talk, friendships being born, friendships being ended, and a plethora of fun photos that you will most likely regret in the morning. *You do NOT need to Drink to be a part of the #DrinkAndClick . Beer, Whiskey, or Water, the goal is to have fun with fellow photographers....so no pressure!* There will also be a photo contest in the week following the event in which we will give out AWESOME prizes to the best photo in each designated category. Categories to be announced shortly.  So drink, click, and be merry! *PLEASE RSVP VIA COMMENT IN THIS POST!*  I will add you to the   #DrinkAndClickSF circle to keep you in the loop of information regarding this adventure and future monthly #DrinkAndClickSF   #DrinkAndClick   #SanFrancisco   #PhotoWalk   #Photography   #BayArea     #California  Drink And Click SF!2012-06-28 17:30:0017

At the Point. This is the fourth of five double page spreads published recently in SALYSÉ magazine. Today I would like to give a special shout out to Oakland-based stylist Pharoah Brand who I have had the honour of working with a dozen or so times since I first met him in January. He has a great eye for pulling wardrobe pieces together, he has a great network of models, make up and hair stylists, and he is a gentle and generous soul who I love working with. Check more of his work out on instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/pharoahbrand/

VANITAS
Have you heard of +Dark Beauty Magazine? Dark Beauty is a popular media entity which celebrates fashion, art and beauty with a darker aesthetic. Recently I got together with a great team of artists and models to put together a series of images we call VANITAS. This series, designed with Dark Beauty in mind was recently published in the Dark Beauty magazine. I'll be sharing images from the series over the next couple of weeks.
In order to captures these images I installed a kiddy pool in the studio. Huge thanks to fellow G+ friend +Joanna Koziara for assisting me with this shoot. She was a rock star, running around adding kettles full of hot water to the pool to keep the models warm and throwing towels into the dryer and positioning lights and recording BTS, etc. The rest of the team are listed below. I'll tell you a bit more about them in future shares...

This is a photo shoot from a few weeks ago, shot on location in Alameda, just East of the USS Hornet Museum. This is a spot I discovered by chance when hanging out and exploring with +Patrick Kelly when he came to visit the Bay Area earlier this year. Patrick - I thought you'd be interested to see I went back there with a model!
We had five wardrobe changes during this shoot, and the editorial was accepted in its entirety for publication in SALYSÉ magazine. This is the first double-page spread out of five. Credits below...

I just finished participating in the Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play 2016 Mentorship program hosted by +Alex Lapidus and his incredible team of supporters from the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers .

I like to shoot portraits and I have where possible tried the techniques within the context of portraiture.

I like to shoot portraits and I have where possible tried the techniques within the context of portraiture. I already have my own style (also known as my own stubborn way of doing things), so personally it is difficult for me to let go of all the things I have worked so hard to develop over the years. Instead I have been trying to use these tools in ways that still make me feel like myself. In particular I enjoyed adding items in front of the lens that would act as a frame around a portrait. There were three main things that were a revelation to me (meaning that I had not really explore on my own much before now):
1) To create a portrait that is fully out of focus
2) The techniques on Pep Ventosa
3) Multiple exposure in camera.
Of these three, I particularly enjoyed the multiple exposure in camera play. I know that it is possible to do in a composite, and I am no stranger to compositing but there is something so much more viscerally satisfying about doing it on the fly.

From time to time I go on photo walks with friends, but given that I am not a street photographer, I don't usually enjoy the photography part of them much. However, I think with these new tools that Alex has opened my mind to, I might be able to have some exploratory fun on future walks, even if I don't have a willing model at my disposal...

#Gplus5 HAPPY 5th Birthday Google+

I searched back in the archives to try and find one of my earliest posts on Google Plus. Given the date on my first profile image, it would appear that I signed up on July 9th 2011. Aww, look at the old younger me with my old Canon 40D taking a snapshot of myself in the mirror!

So much has changed since in between now and then and so much of it because of opportunities I discovered on Google+

So much has changed since in between now and then and so much of it because of opportunities I discovered on Google+

CREATIVE GROWTH AND CONFIDENCE
G+ provided me with a platform where where I could learn, grow, challenge myself and learn new skills alongside others who were experiencing the same. I am particularly grateful to the following:
~ Selfy Sunday aka Self Portrait Sunday +Lotus Carroll ) formerly +Jeff Smith
Where I learned to put myself in front of the lens, which helped me be brave, And where I learned that practicing photography on oneself as a subject is a great starting point for other people.
~ Chrysta Rae's Scavenger Hunt +Chrysta Rae
Where I discovered I could make pictures instead of taking pictures. This quite literally helped change the direction of my life.
~ G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers
Where +Robin Griggs Wood gave me the power to call myself an artist, at the same time providing me with the tools to help me on my artistic journey. And later it gave me the chance to teach and play forward.
~ Miss Aniela +Miss Aniela
One random day on G+ I saw a post by Miss Aniela with an amazing image that piqued my interest. So, of course, I followed her. And then I later saw another post from her saying she had some spaces remaining on a fashion workshop in LA. On the spur of the moment I decided to go for it and signed up for the day of shooting fashion. SInce then I have been on Miss Aniela FSE (Fashion Shoot Experiences) in Iceland and France and I also was in the Studio Audience for her Creative Live in Seattle. This started my love of shooting fashion editorials.
~ Jake Johnson +Jake Johnson
Jake is someone I miss a great deal in this community. Not only did I get to hang out with him lots on that trip to Seattle mentioned above, together we embarked on a year long project called The Passing Keys, See here: http://www.sambreach.com/Personal-Works/The-Passing-Keys
In addition to these regular, long lasting G+ events, along the way I have always been very inspired by collaborative group creative efforts in many other ways:
~Photowalks
~P52 Black and White by +Tisha Montgomery-Luk
~Critiques with +Christina Lawrie
~ #28toMake by +Chase Jarvis
~ The Alphabet Project by +Levi Moore
~ The Toy Box by +Jules Falk Hunter
~ Urban Snap with +Kristine Ward
~ The Travelling Cowstume by +Cora Triton
~ The Pink Shirt by +Ricardo Williams
I am sure I am forgetting many other wonderful things that have inspired me along the way. What wonderful opportunities for creativity and growth I have found here.

PEOPLE and TRAVEL
I have met so many people through G+ and made so many long-lasting friends. I can't name all the people I have met this way, so I'll just detail some of the places and ways that I have become more personally connected around the globe because of G+
~I have been on photowalks or met up with with G+ friends in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Oakdale, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Marin, Berkeley, Phoenix and probably other places I am forgetting.
I have even led my own Photowalks from time to time:
~Google+ One Year Anniversary Photowalk, "San Francisco Industrial Sunrise" where somehow I persuade over 50 people to meet at 5.30 AM!!
~A full tour of Chinatown (I used to be a City Guide)
~Epic 5th Anniversary Photowalk in Albany this past weekend.
Additionally there have been many photowalks in honour of global G+ people visiting San Francisco and so I have met people from all over the world in this way too. So many - there is not even enough space to name them all!
TRAVEL
~ Salt Lake City I was there for the Festival of Colours with dozens of other G+plussers for an epic event organised by +Scott Jarvie back in 2012
~ Las Vegas The first time for Photoshop World, where I met several Scavengers. The second time for a Massive Scavenger Hunt Meet Up with a hundred or so other G Plussers. It was an epic weekend which I hope we will all repeat in 2017.
~ Central California Coast
~ Eastern Sierras
And then there are people I have met because of G+ who have even come to stay with me in my home: +Robin Griggs Wood +Sassi Sassmannshausen and +Sivani Boxall, you get a special mention :D

There is so much more I could say about so many things. There are probably things I have forgotten that I should have mentioned, so in conclusion, I will simply profess my love for my dear G+ family. I would like to thank all the people I have connected with here in the past and the present for enriching my life in so many ways. I hope the future here will bring equally as much joy and purpose and creative collaboration to my life.

Thank you, my friends...

Sam

Would you wear this skirt?
A way to get more space around you when it's standing room only on the commute transit, perhaps?

Thanks a gazillion to everyone who joined me yesterday for the Bay Area G+5 Year Anniversary Photowalk yesterday. We really did have a great time, not least because Kay Neupane agreed to come and model for us as we strolled through Albany Bulb in the East Bay. I haven't had a proper chance to sort through the hundreds of images I took yet, so here is a sneak preview of some of the (as yet unprocessed) images of the kinds of things we were getting up to yesterday.

As Fresh As a Daisy
The fun continues in +Alex Lapidus's Blur Mentorship program. I am super stoked today because I finally came to grips with something I have been putting off getting to grips with for far too long and I learned how to use the Multiple Exposure settings in my camera. And guess what? It's easy to do (once you've digested the manual) plus it's a whole lot of creative exploration. There is something so special about creating effect in camera on the fly. It's a totally different experience to doing it in post production. I highly recommend trying it both ways. Thanks to Alex for nudging me to knuckle down and learn something I have been putting off for too long.

I have an exciting update for those of you joining us on the #G+5Global #G+5BayArea in Albany on Saturday. We are going to have a model to join us. This is Khusbu Neupane, otherwise known as Kay. As you can see, I have photographed her many times. She loves to pose and be in front of a camera and she has generously volunteered to pose on Saturday for all of you.

If you expect you might like to share any images you take of Kay you will be asked to sign a simple model release which grants you the rights use them online for personal use and in your personal portfolios in return for copies of the images that she can use similarly. Tips for Kay will be welcomed, thank you!. Come and see me during the walk to sign the release.

And in other exciting news +Shelly Corbett will also be joining the walk. For those of you who don't know Shelly, he specializes in Toy Photography and rumour has it he will be bringing a few toys along and might be open to giving a little demonstration too.

I look forward to seeing you on Saturday!

Over the past few days I have been sharing images from Hi Jinks, an editorial that was published in Valérie Magazine. This was such a fun shoot and with people I know and feel comfortable with, so, I thought it would be a good time to test out the capabilities of Snapchat (my user name there is Sam.Breach) and make a Behind the Scenes video showing the actual _hi jinks_we got up to as we created the looks we wanted for this fashion story.

Hi Jinks in Valérie
I am so excited because I have a newly published Fashion Editorial to share, featuring one of my favourite models Lissette Maravilla, dressed by my fly neighbour and stylist Pharoah Brand along with Makeup Artist Hylene Sanchez. I love the way this shoot came about. On Facebook, Lissette posted a video of model Coca Rocha doing 19 poses in 30 seconds. (See the video on youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpocKl5ncGk). I commented - we should try that and Lissette answered 'yes' and the rest is history. It was a joy to bring Pharoah on board to style looks suitable for jumping around in and he brought Makeup Artist Hylene with him, who was wonderful. Lissette was a real trooper, full of energy and jumping around all day.

Here is a Pluspost reflecting my time in the Blurs Mentorship Programme by +Alex Lapidus and his stellar crew.
I have had a lot of fun creating blurs this week and learning and practicing doing things differently to the way I normally work. I mostly shoot people, but this week I went to the San Mateo State Fair with the aforementioned Alex, +Linda Villers, +Ken Fowkes and +Joanna Koziara and had a blast trying all sorts of techniques for shooting fairground rides. I also used my camera in bulb model for the first time ever, earlier this evening, whilst shooting clouds and water at sunset. Bulb mode is something I thought I didn't need, but nevertheless, it's much more useful once you know how to use it. Here are a small selection from the many pictures I took at the Fair.

Alternative parking at Fleming Point (right next to the beach) off Gilman Street, although there may be a charge of $5 to $10 as this is part of Golden Gate Fields. Gilman exit works great. No charge. Just continue through Golden Gate Fields lot and down the other side, drive as far as you can to the far end of lot and park by the big clump of trees
Sunset Time: 8.36pm
High Tide: 6:03PM
Bring: Cameras, tripods, sunscreen, snacks, water. Your family - let us practice our portraiture on them ;)
Invite and Share: G+ friends Past, Present and Future.
Everybody Welcome. Photographers, non-photographers, any level, any equipment, friends and family. We amble slowly, we stop, we talk, we make slow progress. This is a very laid back event.
Any updates and extra information will be added to this post, both in advance and on the day of the walk. Leave a comment if you plan on joining us and we'll know to look out for you.
